The claimant - or one of the partners in the case of married couples or life partners - must have at least 1 year of continuous social security entitlement. The 1-year period of entitlement counts:
- a legal relationship according to § 6 of the Tbj Act - a public employment relationship (public work) is not accepted for the last 180 days;
- full-time studies at a higher education institution;
- employment in addition to a pension;
- the foreign social security status and
- the period of graduate GYED.
However, it is important to note that the applicant must be insured under Article 6 of the Social Insurance Act (Tbj) - public employment is not sufficient - and employment while receiving a pension is also acceptable.
In other words, it is suitable if you have worked abroad but already have Hungarian social security status. Moreover, in the case of multiple claimants, it is also acceptable if one of the claimants is currently working abroad, but in this case the other claimant must fulfil the requirement of having a social security status.
Among others, they are considered insured persons under § 6 of the Social Insurance Act:
- Those who are employed.

- Persons receiving job-seeker's allowance (unemployment benefit).
- Sole proprietors and partners.
